PREFACE. 



For publishing the compressed edition of the 
English Baronetage, which is brought down to 
the period of the last creation (April 1, 1806) 
no apology is requisite. Much pains has beeu 
taken by the Editor to render it correct; and, 
while the portability of its form must recom- 
mend it to public notice, its being the only 
emvpLie work of the kind gives it a claim to 
universal patronage. 

To the English Baronets, Baronets of Great 
Britain, and of the United -Kingdom, are sub- 
joined accounts of some Scottish Baronets of 
English families ; or resident in England ; with 
correct, lists of all the Scottish and Irish Ba- 
ronets. 



INTRODUCTION. 



JL HE order of Baronets, which is the first a-nonjf the 
gentry, and the only knighthood that is hereditary, was 
instituted by King Jamis the First in the yea,r 1611, who 
limircd the number to two hundred; but since that period 
they have been gre;itly increased. One thousand three 
hundred and eighty-two Baronets of England, Great 
Britain, and of the United Kingdom, have been created; 
and excin8i\rely of those who have attained the rank of 
nobility, the;e are now existing upwards of five hundred. 
The title Sir is granted to ihem, by a clause in dieir 
patents; their wives are Ladies; and they have prece- 
dence before all Knights, except Knights of the Garter, 
Knights who are Privy Councillors, or Knights Bannerets, 
made under the King's banner or standard. 

It is understood, that the rebellion of the Irish, in the 
province of Ulster, gave rise to this order; as a Baronet, 
on his creation, must pay into the Exchequer as much as 
will maintain thirty soldiers for three years, at eight-pence 
per day, in the province of Ulster, in Ireland, which 
amounts to nearly 1 100/. sterling *. 

A Baronet of England, Great Britain, or of the United 
Kingdom, has the privilege to bear, in a canton of his 
coat of arms, or in a whole escutcheon, the arms of Ulstci", 

* This has been dispensed with of late years.

lified, the person ought to be a gentleman born, and have 
a clear estate of 1000/. per annum. 

The order of Baronets in Scotland was projected by 
King James the Sixth, to encourage the colonization of 
the proviiice of Nova Ssrotia, in America, the first settle- 
ment made by the Scots beyond the Atlantic ; but he 
dying before Lis intentions were accomplished, his son, 
King Charles the First,, in the first year of his reign, exe- 
cuted his royal father's plan, and Instituted this order im- 
mediately after his accession. In the patents granted previ- 
ously to the year 1G29, his Majesty declared and ordained, 
that the Earonets, and their Jieir» male, should, as an 
addition of honour to their armorial ensigns, bear,, either 
on a canton, or inescutcheoii, at their option, the eiisign 
of Nova Scotia, being Argait^ a cress of' St. /^iidreiv, azure, 
tharged with an inescuicheon of tiie royal arms of Scotland ; 
supported on the dexter by the royal unicorn, and on the 
finister ly a savage^ or wild man, proper ^ and, for the 
crest, A branch of laurel and a thistle, issui7ig from two 
hands conjoined^ the one being armed,' and the other naked ; 
with thi<motto, Manet hcec, et altera vincit. ^ In the patents 
granted in tlie year 1629, and subsequently thereunto, the 
above clause was omitted, but another privilege gi"anted; 
viz : that the Baronets, and their heirs male, shall wear, 
and carry about their necks, anujrange tannic silk ribbon, 
v.'hcreon shall be pendent, in a scutcheon, argent, asaltire, 
azure ; thereon an inescutcheon of the arms of Scotland, 
with an imperial crown above the scutcheon ; and encii- 
cled with this motto, F«j: mentis honesta gloria. This

badge of distinction was lost, during the usurpation of the 
Long Parliament, and Of Oliver Cromwell, but was re- 
stored in the year 1775. 

The order of JBaronets in Ireland was instituted by 
King James the First, in the 17th year of his reign, sooa 
after h^s creation of the like dignity in England. The 
Irish Baronets were to enjoy the same privileges as those 
of England ; they were also to assist in the reduction of 
Ulster ; they had the same arms assigned to them ; and 
were to pay into the treasury of Ireland the same fees, &:c 
as paid in England. They have no established prece- 
dence in this part of the kingdom, but are on the same 
footing, is, tUi> XMjpect, as th« Irish Peers arc wiih tiie

one daughter, Theodosia, wife of John DoncUan, Esq. 

The sudden death of Sir Theodosius, at l.awford-Hall, 
on the 29th of Aug. 1780, then in his 21st year, created 
such strong suspicions, that the body was taken up for 
examination, after it had been deposited in the family 
vault at Nev.'bold ; and in pursuance of the verdict of a 
coroner's inquest, Mr. Donellau was committed to prison 
at Warwick : where he was, on the ?9th of March fol-

Justice Buller; was found guilty, after a trial wliich lasted

heir general of William Lord Heron, her grandfather. 
She married John Lord Darcy, and in 1536 the Baronies 
of Darcy and Heron were forfeited by the attainder of 
their descendant, Thomas Lord Darcy. Upon the descent 
of Hadeston to Emeline Heron, Ford Castle became 
the chief seat of this family, which divided into many 
branches; particularly those of Ford Ca'tle, Bokenfjild, 
Chipchase, Arplynden, Cressy, and Newark; some of 
which at length failed for want of male heirs; and others

thaf Comes Roherh/s de Comine, who canJe'f^ England 
with William the Conqueror, was proo;enitor of all the 
Cumins in this country. It appears from other autho» 
rities, that the family of Robert Cnmine, Earlof North- 
umberland, Avas settled in Britain before the Conqueror 
came over. Others are of opinion, that they are of the 
aniicnt inhabitants of Scotland; for the second abbot of 
Icolmkilf, in 597, was Cumine. It is agreed, however, 
that tiie Cumines had large possessions in lands, and much 
greater power than any other name in Scotland whatever, 
fnomf the rei^ of Malcolm III. to that of Kmg Robert 
Bruce. From the Cumines, Lords of Badenoch, chiefs oftbt 
Vhoie clan, were descended the Cumines, Earls of Buchaij, 
Earls of Monteith-, &c.; but the direct male line of these 
families has long since failed. Alexander Cuming, cif 
Ahyn, Esq. (sixteenth in descent from Sir John Cumine, 
Lord of Badencvch, who died 1249) married Grace, daugh-
